1981: Adam Walsh, 6, is kidnapped in Hollywood, Florida. He would be found murdered two weeks later. Convicted serial killer Ottis Toole later confessed to the boy's murder but was never tried for the crime due to loss of evidence and a recanted confession. Adam's father, John Walsh, would go on to become an advocate for victims of violent crimes and the host of the TV show "America's Most Wanted."
